The Space

Dear Guests,
I have several apartments in Cihangir / Beyoğlu-Taksim / Nişantaşı and i would love to have you as my guests in one of them.
Please check out my other listing (its on the right under"my other listing") for more availability.

The apartment is situated at the heart of Istanbul. 5 minutes walking distance in both directions and is located close to all means of transportation... trains, trams, buses, and sea transportation (islands) which makes traveling to other parts of the city very convenient. It is 10 minutes walking distance from Cihangir and 5 minutes Istiklal (pedestrian boulevard) where you may find many wonderful restaurants, bars, clubs, stores, galleries and mosques, churches, synagogues. It is 3 minutes walking distance to the sea shore where you may enjoy a tasty Turkish tea or coffee in the park or from there you may want to take the tram to go visit the Historical Island where Hagia Sofia, Sultanahmet, the Cistern and many more tourist attractions are located. It is also walking distance to the Istanbul Modern Art Museum and art galleries of the Tophane area.

Apartment is on a very quiet and peaceful street which is a rarity in Beyoglu. Academicians and writers who have stayed here did not want to leave when the time came... Suitable for families too!

Please note that our prices include all the costs, taxes and the following:
* A fully furnished flat with linens, towels, kitchen equipment, etc.
* Electricity, water, gas and maintenance bills
* Free,unlimited,wireless and cable ADSL internet connection
* TV set with a satellite (displaying both local and foreign channels)
* Cleaning of the flat and changing of the linens & towels before check-in
* Maintenance of the building (and repairs to all items)

In total the flat is around 100 sq

Thank you and looking forward seeing you in Istanbul.

  • Yaprak's was a great host and helped us out with arranging a taxi, letting us leave our bags in our flat, etc. Her flat is perfectly located and is very clean. Everything matches the photos. We'd recommend her place to anyone.

  • Booked the apartment for my parents. Yaprak was very friendly and helpful. She organized everything very well. The apartment is as described and has a very good location. During the stay if my parent there were construction works going on at the building next door, so it was a bit noisy, besides that everything was fine.

  • Yaprak was a very friendly host. She was there when we arrived even though it was late in the evening to give us the keys, maps, and show us how everything worked. The apartment is good sized and VERY clean, and definitely centrally located as advertised. It is also right across from the Italian consulate and there is a 24 hour security guard just outside, which was really nice. In the house, there is also a big thing of filtered water, which was also a major bonus.

    However, the building directly attached to it was under major construction, so starting very early everyday (I think including Sunday) there was a lot of noise and it was hard to sleep if we were jetlagged or stayed out late the night before. For those who are early to bed and early to get up, I think this would work fine, but we weren't wanting to get up at 7:30 and it definitely impacted our trip. I would be sure to ask Yaprak about this before your stay. I do think if we had told her earlier that it was a problem she would have helped us find a solution, since she was quite helpful.

    Response from Yaprak:

    Dear Nora,

    I am so sorry to hear that... Normally the construction do not starts around 7-8 and not everyday.. I live in this flat, and i sleep well.. And if i sleep late at night around 4,5 than i prefer tpo sleep in the other room or at the couch in the living room which is very comfortable.. However i am sorry again for the inconvience...

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Yaprak's beautiful apartment at the beginning of May.

    Yaprak was a wonderful host, extremely helpful and welcoming. She gave us some great restaurant/bar recommendations and told us about the places to go and the transports.

    The apartment is very cute and very safe. She warned us in advance that some constructions are going on in the nearby building and that it risks to be a little bit noisy, but it did not disturb to us, the works were going on during the day. The location is ideal for getting around in Istanbul (and also a taxi rank next to the apartment!!). Checking in and out was extremely easy.

    I will definitely recommend Yaprak's apartment to anyone visiting Istanbul - you will not be disappointed!

  • Yaprak was away but she was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The flat was in a perfect location, a quiet street very close to a tram stop and easy walking to restaurants (and milongas!)

    Everything was clean and as described on the site and we had a lovely holiday. My only concern was the strong smell of smoke in the apartment, but smoking does seem much more common in Istanbul.

    Response from Yaprak:

    Dear Carole this problem is fault one of my cleaning ladies. Because i was not at there when she cleaned up the flat. she smoked in the flat. Normally the flat is non-smoker. Thanks for informed me. I hope see you next time.

    Best, Yaprak

  • Yaprak is a wonderful host! She is extremely kind and welcoming, and very friendly. We are so happy with our experience, and will recommend her to all of our family and friends.

    The flat was beautiful, very clean and exactly like the pictures. There were fresh and clean towels and sheets. The kitchen and fridge were very clean and had all the supplies and clean dishes that we needed to cook for us and our little one. Yaprak even helped us with any questions we had with our airport transfer, water, etc. She was always available, and we felt very safe knowing that there was one person we could contact.

    We have a small child, so we were very happy to be in a safe, welcoming place with lots of space for her to run around! :) The neighborhood was very safe and the locals are very friendly and always willing to help. Even if someone cannot speak English, they will try their best to help you. (Yaprak speaks excellent English, we were able to communicate easily.)

    Istanbul is an amazing, special place, and you will not regret your trip if you go there and stay in one of Yaprak's properties! Thanks again Yaprak!

    Sincerely, Rabia, Marwan and Emaan :)

  • The apartment was lovely, clean, well appointed and in a great location. Comfy sofas for end of day lounging, a lovely big shower and just generally really nice throughout. The apartment is literally face on to the Italian Consulate, so there is a security guard around in a booth at all times, and it is a 5 minute walk to Tophane tram stop. It was a great base to explore from. Yaprak was really helpful and responsive in the run-up to our trip, welcomed us with lots of useful information and recommendations and gave us a proper introduction the apartment and how everything worked. We did not need to call on her during our trip, but it was great to know that she was there if we needed her. I would not hesitate to stay in one of her apartments again and hope to do so when we go back one day. She is a great host.

  • This apartment is in a great location with so many restaurants, shops, cafes and the tram within walking distance. Yaprak is so adorable and we loved meeting with her on our arrival and hearing all her suggestions on things to do. Our only complaints about the apartment is that we didn't have hot water in the shower our first morning, which was a bummer as we were looking forward to a good shower after several days of travel. Yaprak had it fixed later that day. The back bedroom also smells a little strange, like a musty mildew smell. There was also some construction going on that was very loud in the morning. Other than that, the place was great!

  • Yaprak is a really good host, she helped us with our inquiries. The location of the apartment is great! The street is quiet and it is close to many restaurants, stores and bars. Besides, it is walking distance from the tram station. The apartment has everything you might need to enjoy your stay. I would definitely recommended it!

  • Location is really good. I can go anywhere by tram and go to around taksim squea very easily. Around apartment, there are some market, restaurant and bakery.
    Rooms are big and comfortable. And I front of the apartment, security's there.
    Yaprak is so kind, and when I want to ask something, she helps me quickly and gently.
    If I have chance to come to Istanbul again, I love to stay there again!
